The Obama campaign has made its first ad buy, albeit a "tiny" one.
A senior Obama 2012 campaign aide says the buy is intended more as a test to see if people will sign up with the campaign than as a full-blown television spot.
Two different ads, part of the same ad buy, will air nationally on satellite.
The ads are after the jump.
I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message. I need you to do me a favor - it'll only take a minute. The 2012 campaign is underway, and the outcome will depend not on what I do, but on what you do.

It starts with one person making a decision -- that things need to change, and they're going to help change them. That person finds another person who shares their values. They go out and find a few more -- and before long, neighborhoods come together. Communities organize. A movement builds. It all starts with you, making a decision to get involved -- because we've got so much more to do. Call the number on your screen or visit JoinObama.com to let me know you're in.
